Hi I'm Vicki

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in the country, went to college, served God on a Mission, married and I'm a mother.

About Me

I am a country girl, a survivor of sexual abuse, College Graduate, Wife, Mother, Grandma. I love to read, spend time with my children, grandchildren and friends, scuba diving, genealogy, swimming, traveling and NASCAR.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Latter Days Saints because I believe it has everything I need to help me return to the presence of God. I believe that God has a Prophet today as he did in ancient times to guide us and help us know what God wants us to do; not society. I believe through a living prophet God has provided a way for my family and all families to be together forever. No other place on earth can give me that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by first living what we teach. Being an example. Second sharing what we believe with others. Visiting other women to see how they are doing and help when needed. Third, serve by teaching children, teenagers, organizing events, directing congregation in Hymns, teaching little children to sing and cleaning our church buildings. Just to name a few.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Vicki
Missionaries proselyte to find those who are looking for God's church. Would God have a bunch of churches? Would he have them teaching all different doctrines? No, so missionaries proselyte to find those who want to know about Mormons from a Mormon. (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) Missionaries proselyte to serve God and others.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Vicki
We wear our best dresses for girls and for men suits, dress shirts with ties, dress pants. We dance, participate in sports (but not on Sundays), we have fun, play board games, swim, listen to music (some guidelines provided) and many, many activities the same as other people. As long as we obey God's laws and keep his commandments we enjoy life and are happy. Show more Show less
